The problem statement should allow the readers to understand why this particular study is important and how the study will attempt to answer contemporary, relevant questions in criminal justice.

The cause is called the independent variable; and the effect is called the dependent variable.
If the independent variable is (increased, decreased, or changed), then the dependent variable will (increase, decrease, or change.)
If the police bicycle patrols increased, instead of cars, then community satisfaction with law enforcement would improve.
